REAL MEN DON'T REHEARSE is the funniest book you'll ever read about orchestras and classical music! This is what it's really like to play in a professional orchestra. Unlike the usual high-minded approach, this is a laugh-out-loud look at the culture of the certifiably insane people who play notes for a living. Makes the perfect gift for that music lover on your list!

Highly recommended! --Dr. Demento

"'Real Men Don't Rehearse' paints a lively picture of what goes on behind the scenes at a major symphony orchestra. Anybody who thinks that all classical musicians are stuffy and lack a sense of humor will be set straight by this rambunctious book."
--Peter Schickele ("curator" of "PDQ Bach")
